Definizione

A sour liquid processed using fermentation and can be made from a wide range of fruits, including the grape, as well as from ciders and beers. 1

Nota

Vinegar is made by two distinct biological processes, both the result of the action of harmless microorganisms (yeast and “Acetobacter”) that turn sugars (carbohydrates) into acetic acid. […] The first process is called alcoholic fermentation and occurs when yeasts change natural sugars to alcohol under controlled conditions. In the second process, a group of bacteria (called “Acetobacter”) converts the alcohol portion to acid. 2

Contesto

The vinegar produced and used today is much like the product of years past, but with newly discovered flavors and uses. 3
